Mount Trashmore Trails & Overlook Transforms Trash to Community Treasure

Former Landfill Now Features Trails for Biking and Hiking in Cedar Rapids, Iowa

After decades of operation as a landfill, Mount Trashmore Trails & Overlook reopened its doors as a scenic outlook complete with hiking and biking trails. Cedar Rapids Linn County Solid Waste Agency brought us on board as owner’s engineer to manage the transformation, ensuring the overlook is as safe as it is beautiful for the community it overlooks. See how it all came together.
